Safety first. He might have fit a four-way tire iron on there. But then, if he was driving and hit something, the other end of the iron would have pierced his chest. This approach is thinking ahead.

Having once owned a Peugeot (I know, I know) I'm convinced that some models emerge from the factory like that.
Especially on a Friday.


After a long lunch.

I've been eyeing up a book called The Big Black Book of Very Dirty Words. Most reviews are what I would expect/hope for (hilarious, things I've never come across before...) and the obligatory "dumb, returned it".... and then ......

"not the content I was looking for"



WITF were you looking for in a book of that title? Words like soil, compost, dust....?

Oh yes, I'm going used for sure, (not that used, though ). But posting links to used items is generally daft because they disappear once sold.... (and the reviews pertain more to the seller and book condition than content)

Shot himself on school property. In Virginia, itís illegal to bring a gun onto school property, regardless of any permit you might have. He would be in trouble here.

That's someone who didn't take the time to learn the limitations of his equipment in a confined space. Clothing can bunch up to snag or press on a firearm's safety moving it to the off position, a wad of clothing can get inside a trigger guard to snag or press on a trigger, and lack of a snug retention strap can allow vertical movement in the holster which facilitates the aforementioned.

These things often can't be felt; so, the rule of thumb is to not make adjustments to concealed carry equipment that you can't visualize while making the adjustment. Even if the equipment has shifted and become uncomfortable, you grin and bear it until you can safely adjust it (e.g. by lowering trousers in a bathroom stall). Shifting of concealed carry equipment is an indicator that it may be predisposed to a mishap.

In Mississippi, I can carry on school property, in church, and even in a courthouse.
